Wearable antennas and electronics technology rapidly grows the last decades and leads to a future where smart textiles will be integrated into our garments. However the wearable technology research includes unsolved or of different approach challenges. This thesis deals with challenges regarding wearable antenna characterization and measurements, textile antennas feeding and textile transmission lines interconnecting. Regarding the wearable antenna characterization and measurements, a novel design of a liquid torso phantom and a new methodology for evaluating wearable antenna performance by using the cylindrical near field measurement technique are proposed. As for the textile antennas and transmission lines feeding and interconnecting, two novel methods are proposed.
